Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Mi2les of smi2les

What is the big deal about this poster? If you think he is clever, amusing, interesting, or whatever--read his posts. If you do not, skip them. Is this any different than deciding which funnies you choose to read on Sunday?

This forum is getting mired by all the opinions about a poster. It isn't about the poster--it's about the post.

Hell, what do any of us really know about each other?

Cush is actually a top leader in the Taliban. Some say he knows the whereabouts of Osama.

Mcglone is a hang dog lackey for the military industrial complex that rules Amerika.

Tell is secretly an enforcer for the mob.

Dire Wolf is the "headmaster" at the Wilton School for Wayward girls. They call him Mr. Wolf.

SDH is wanted in seven states for blowing up the offices of the Mormon Church.

Arbuthnot is still in hiding over that incident with the alter boy last Christmas Eve.

Wharf Rat, as we all know, has spent half of his life doing time for some other fucker's crime.


"Me, I sit here patiently, waiting to find out the price
You have to pay to get out of going through all these things twice."


So what was smi2les' great sin? Being a gadfly on a windshield? Not much when compared to the above outlaws.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Mi2les of smi2les

I agree with you, smi2les is mostly a minor annoyance. So what if he attempts to hijack every thread, in the grand scheme of things, it is very small.
But the reality of this is that smi2les is the welcome mat of this forum. Any poster who says, "hello, I'm new here." gets greeted by smi2les first. With witty commentary like, "while sporting your Chinese fantastic plastic cardboard cowboy hat" or "The Hornless Earless Goat resemble The Aliens, realy hard to Milk w/o horns" or "but remember behind the fly either awaits vinegar, a pickle, or both.....depending on the season."
Said new-poster then hits the go-back button and says, "this didn't say it was an idiot convention." and is never heard from again.
And really, can you blame them?

Idiot convention? I for one take great umbrage at such a statement. For was it not the purple roast phone sanitizer who reciprocated his own gelatinous ponderings? Cram that in your pipe and digitize it.
And remember this: talking to a glass marble on a Monday precedes gorging on plastic rebreathers Tuesday.

Wow, I think I may have hurt myself with that one. Never realized how much work making no sense is. Hats off to the master.

As for the Morman thing: maybe and maybe not. I must refer all further questions to counsel. It's just the whole short sleeve dress shirt/tie/black pants/bicycle/magic underwear thing gets to me sometimes.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: YOU ALL LET THIS HAPPEN!

GOP, you have only been posting here since January, so Cliff is going to give you a pass for "totally not getting it"!

With the exception of the Grateful Dead Vault, the LMA is the most comprehensive collection of Grateful music in existence. This is a serious library, not a fucking playground or a chat-room! If you checked out the other forums at the LMA, you would not find any threads consisting of one poster conversing with himself under different handles. Nor would you find "mean spirited" replies to intelligent posts about relevant matters.

Since discovering the LMA, Cliffs life changed! Here was this incredible collection of amazing Grateful Dead music. And even better, a serious forum to discuss this music with other knowledgeable heads! It seems like a long time ago now, after things have degenerated so far, but this forum used to be a "hot-bed" of intelligent discussion about Grateful Dead music!

Cliff remembers being completely overwhelmed; downloading a flash suggestion while streaming one of tigers picks, while simultaneously bookmarking more shows and wondering how to get it all done! AND HOW MUCH FUN IT USED TO BE TO SHARE THESE DISCOVERIES!

When Cliff looks at the forum this morning, its a complete joke! But a sad one! Any intelligent threads about shows or music have been pushed down by smi2les welcoming himself to the is forum under new handles.

Cliff is actually not surprised that some folks stick up for someone who posts and reviews shows that he has never bothered to listen to! They are usually the same folks who have only recently posted here, and who really have had nothing worthwhile to contribute! Their posts are most often something stupid like "Which venues had the cleanest Port-O-san facilities?"

What happened to the serious posters like dr flash, orchid, purple gel, tiger, etc, etc, etc? What happened to all the interesting threads about shows and music?

You suggest simply not to read his posts, but smi2les, by hijacking every thread with his "Bullshit", has sucked the life right out of this forum!

If you all would rather discuss rabbits, and other assorted nonsense, and stick up for an individual who has ONLY disrespected this amazing place and all of you, than SEE YA!

Cliff has other fish to fry!

Boo hoo hoo!

Of course you are my bright little star,

And miles
Of files
Pretty files of your forefather's fruit
and now to suit our

You're magnetic ink.

I'm more than that, I know I am, at least, I think I must be.

Handle 2-
There you go man, keep as cool as you can.
Face piles
And piles
Of trials
With smiles.
It riles them to believe
that you perceive
the web they weave
And keep on thinking free.

Cliff:

I do not need a "pass" from you or any other individual here or anywhere else on this planet. Your proprietary rantings are no better than what smi2les posts--and I do not think that what you wrote shows the side of you that has intelligent commentary and excellent taste. You do not make the rules here--no one does. Your hostile reposte merely serves to underscore the very hostility you decry.

As to how long I have posted here--how long? Mine is not as long as yours? Jeeze. Are you implying that it is quantity, not quality that counts? Or are you implying that my posts are worthless? Or are you implying that you are great and perfect and wonderful and oh so cool and I am not? Seems that way. Oh, well.

You state that this is a "serious library." Fine. You state that smi2les posts are "bullshit." Fine.

Then you state, "If you all would rather discuss rabbits, and other assorted nonsense, and stick up for an individual who has ONLY disrespected this amazing place and all of you, than SEE YA!" Gee, isn't that just what uncle Bob said to piss all of you entitled elitists off?

"They are usually the same folks who have only recently posted here, and who really have had nothing worthwhile to contribute! Their posts are most often something stupid like 'Which venues had the cleanest Port-O-san facilities?'" So you also say that most of us posters who are not Cliff have nothing worthwhile to contribute? Are you that self-absorbed?

And, even as you sling your dulled arrows at me, here's another quote:

"Fascinating information ghostofpig!

Cliff knew there were some good folks here who could contribute to an intelligent discussion of music..." Which is it Cliff? Am I a contributer to intelligent discussion of music or someone who has nothing worthwhile to contribute.


Finally, if you think smi2les' posts are whacky, I'd think hard about the fact that you post in the third person. Ghost suggests that you take your Prozac.


In the meantime, if you do not like my posts, please skip them. I won't offend me.

Now, if you would kindly get off your rant get back to some of that "intelligent posting," the world would be a better place.

Oh--and I'll give you a "pass" on your post as I know you are a true guardian of the vault.

Ghost ... i don't want to get into the middle of this, but of course i am, ha, ha. However, i read Cliff's post, and i am not entirely certain that he is stating that it's the time that someone has posted here, i believe he was only making reference to the fact that when he started posting here, the forum was, shall we say, of a more substantive nature. Whether it was or not, i suppose is up to the reader; from my perspective it was. However, that is not to say that there aren't equally impressive and informative posts currently, because i feel there are, it's only that there is more garbage to filter out.

Also, you query Cliff: "Are you that self-absorbed?"

It's true what you say do any of us really know each other, well, likely not, though i posit that one can get a sense of another through various other means, e-mail, time acquainted on-line through each other's words, etc. Anyway, my point is that while i perceive Cliff to be confident, i do not perceive him as self-absorbed. Though funny you should mention it, i mean, in the sense that you could certainly swim through the many posts here on the LMA and interpret, possibly falsely, who is actually self-absorbed or not. And gee, smi2les is most definitely _not_ the latter, it's always about him ... go figure.

I have tremendous respect for Cliff's posts--except the one that appeared to attack me for downplaying smi2les' posts as innocuous. I don't really see Cliff as self-absorbed, but the post was nonetheless a bit overbearing. I do believe that he counted my months of posting in the first few lines and said he would let me slide as I was too new to "get it." You miss those sentences?

I appreciate the old-timers who post here with love and concern; but you have to allow new posters in as equals or the whole thing is meaningless. There is no function to seniority, and it is insulting to be gauged not by one's contributions, but by one's length of "membership."

I judge Cliff by his excellent commentary--I have never clicked his name to see how far back he goes. I don't give a toot about that. Or you--it's your posts that matter; and I like them. I look forward to both of your posts and read each one as I see them come up in the radar.


Would it be anymore fair to judge posters by when they first saw the band? Or how often? Would the fact that I shook Jerry's hand put me at the top of the list. Nope. And it shouldn't.

agreed, agreed, agreed, and most certainly, anyone who posts here should be taken on the merit of their posts or lack thereof, and not on how long they have been posting, of course, and never will you get argument from me on that front; i will however, given what i _do_ know of Cliff, presume that his earlier post in reply to your own, was written in a heated moment where his mental faculties perhaps got wrapped around his love of the music and this forum; and anyway, i can't imagine him or anyone having any argument with you or your contributions, seriously, they are highly appreciated, at least from my and many others perspective; but sometimes, myself included, it's hard to step back and take a broader and possibly more objective view when something we enjoy is perceived, whether rightly or wrongly, as being diminished in quality. I will not, however, get into that whole pandora's box, at least not now, got too much other on my plate. I remember during Basic Training in the Army, one of the first things that one learns right quick is that there are no excuses, that a soldier's actions are just that, and accept the consequences or rewards, period. Why do i say this? I don't know, guess reading certain posts i am reminded of what it means to be upfront about what you do and do not do in life and how you confront others, and what comes out of your mouth ... are they words someone can respect, or are they words that are wrought from a defensive, cowardly stance. Actually, it's why i have a great respect for your own postings, because they speak a nature resolved and true. But i don't know, if you shook Jer's hand, well, all hail ghostofpig!

Ghost - I'd thought of taking Cliff to task over his recent foot-stamping diatribes but I knew you were more than up to the task yourself. For what it's worth I endorse your riposte entirely. I fear that my own, in t-shirt slogan summary, would have amounted to 'Cliff, I'm trying to see things from your point of view - but I can't quite get my head that far up my ass...'

I REALLY doubt it....the forum mod, Diane Hamilton, called me on it when I posted under 2 handles last year, and I was not even being secretive about it "I'm beside myself"

Thus, the mod's here are NOT cool on multiple handles and would call my cryptic friend, smi2les, on it. They have all our IP numbers here.

Smi2les posts are no big deal-imo. So you do need to go fishing I guess, ALL THIS is no big deal, really!
